  • Step 4. Please Enter the Wi-Fi Password at the Authentication required window.

4G Dial-up Networking

!!! Note Mini AI Computer T906 does not come with 4G module, the following procedure are performed with Neoway N720 4G Module.

  • Step 1. Please download the 4G Module drivers and unzip the package, then Copy the driver to /etc/ppp/peers by using the Terminal:

wget -o-


sudo cp -f 4g_dail_script/* /etc/ppp/peers
  • Step 2. Go to the /etc/ppp/peers directory and find the script. The first time you execute it, you will need to grant execute permissions, as follows.

cd /etc/ppp/peers

sudo chmod +x

sudo ./

If you need to turn off dial-up, you can run the script to end it.

cd /etc/ppp/peers

#turn off dial-up
sudo ./

  • Step 3. If you want to implement the 4G auto-connect feature, you need to set up the rc.local startup script to increase the number of applications on system boot.

  • Step 3-1. Add rc-local.service

#create a system service
sudo ln -fs /lib/systemd/system/rc-local.service /etc/systemd/system/rc-local.service

#edit the service file
sudo vi /etc/systemd/system/rc-local.service

At the vi editor, type i and then please type in following:


and then type :wq to save and quit.

  • Step 3-2. Write the rc.local script
sudo touch /etc/rc.local

sudo chmod 755 /etc/rc.local

sudo vi /etc/rc.local

At the vi editor, type i and then use control+shift+V or paste the following script:


mkdir -p $LOG_DIR

#4g auto dial if register on network. sleep 30s wait for 4g module prepared
TIME=`date +%Y%m%d%H%M`
echo $TIME >> $LOG_DIR/ppp-dial.log
echo "Auto dial" >> $LOG_DIR/ppp-dial.log
nohup /etc/ppp/peers/ >> $LOG_DIR/ppp-dial.log &

sleep 10
#Set default gateway
def_gw=`/sbin/ifconfig ppp0|grep destination|grep -v|grep -v inet6 | awk '{print $6}' | tr -d "addr:"`
#`route -n | grep ppp0 | grep UG | awk '{print $2}'`
echo $def_gw >> $LOG_DIR/ppp-dial.log
if [ -n "$def_gw" ]; then
#Set default gateway using ppp0/4G
sudo route add default gw $def_gw
sleep 10
def_gw=`/sbin/ifconfig ppp0|grep destination|grep -v|grep -v inet6 | awk '{print $6}' | tr -d "addr:"`
if [ -n "$def_gw" ]; then
sudo route add default gw $def_gw
#Get ppp0 IP
fourg_ip=`/sbin/ifconfig ppp0|grep inet|grep -v|grep -v inet6 | awk '{print $2}' | tr -d "addr:"`
if [ -n "$fourg_ip" ]; then
echo $fourg_ip >> $LOG_DIR/ppp-dial.log
sleep 15
if [ -n "$fourg_ip" ]; then
echo $fourg_ip >> $LOG_DIR/ppp-dial.log
echo "4G no ip $fourg_ip" >> $LOG_DIR/ppp-dial.log
echo $TIME"-Kill pppd and redial" >> $LOG_DIR/ppp-kill.log
nohup /etc/ppp/peers/ >> $LOG_DIR/ppp-kill.log &
#end 4g auto dial

#Running maxn mode

exit 0

Now you can open a web page to test and see if the 4G network is connected.


  • Step 1. Install the gpio python library

git clone

cd gpio/

sudo python3 install

  • Step 2. Write a testing python script
import time
import gpio

tst_gpio_pin = 326 #326 correspond to T906's GPIO2
#tst_gpio_pin = 350 #350 correspond to T906's GPIO1

gpio.setup(tst_gpio_pin, gpio.OUT)
gpio.set(tst_gpio_pin, 0)

print("Starting now! Press CTRL+C to exit")
while True:
gpio.set(tst_gpio_pin, 1)
print("TEST High.")
gpio.set(tst_gpio_pin, 0)
print("TEST Low")
  • Step 3. you could also check if the GPIO pin is at HI or LO by:

sudo cat /sys/kernel/debug/gpio| grep '326'


!!!Note This is the step for testing with the GPS module, The following procedure and software are for HX-26-GN series GPS module, Please note that the GPS Module is not included in the standard product, you need to supply on your own.

  • Step 1. please Mount the GPS module and attach the GPS antenna to the GPS port.
  • Step 2. After bootup the system, you can find the twork folderat the home location, double click into it and right click mouse button and select Open in Terminal.
  • Step 3. At the Terminal window, please Enter following command:

sudo ./bd.gps_serialport

the correct result should be as similar:

if you see following output it means that the location is not successful, which might be the signal is weak to lock the location, please go to an open area to expose the unit to gain more signals to get posititon locked.

Using NVMe SSD as a System Rootfs Drive

!!!Note This is the step for setting NVMe SSD as the system disk to expand the storage size of the rootfs, along side the EMMC or SD Card as system boot partiton. Note the NVMe SSD is not included in the standard product, you need to supply on your own.

  • Step 1. Install the SSD

    Follow the steps in the Hardware Instructions to install the SSD for reComputer.

  • Step 2. Prepare SSD

    Use the shortcut Ctrl+F or click the Ubuntu icon in the upper left corner to search for Disks and open the Disks tool that comes with Ubuntu 18.04.

Select your SSD on the left side and then select Format Disk in the upper right corner under the menu bar.

Format your SSD to GPT format. A pop-up window will appear asking you to confirm and enter your user password.

Then, we click on the middle + to add a disk character.

Click on "Next".

Please give your SSD a name and select Ext4 in the type and click "Create". At this point we have completed the SSD prep according to the expansion requirements.

  • Step 3. Build the root directory to the SSD

    Use the git command to download the script files we need to use to reComputer.

git clone

cd rootOnNVMe/

Then execute the following command to build the files from the root directory in the eMMC to the SSD, the wait time for this step depends on the size of the root directory you are using.


  • Step 4. Configure the environment and complete the expansion

    Execute the following command to complete the configuration of rootfs.


When you restart reComputer, you will see that the eMMC has become an external storage device on the main interface, and you will see that the system footprint has been reduced, so the expansion was successful.

!!!Attention The default SSD path in the script file is /dev/nvme0n1p1, which is also the path assigned by default by reComputer. If you find that your SSD path does not match this with the command sudo fdisk -l, change the path of all /dev/nvme0n1p1 in the files, data/setssdroot.service, and data/ in rootOnNVMe to the path where your SSD is located.

The above expansion will not remove the original root directory contents from the eMMC. If you do not want to boot from the SSD, you can remove the SSD and the system will still boot from the eMMC.
